I haven't made any mods to my car at all, it's all stock design.
The u-shaped "grill" between the headlight is different now after a run in with a wall in that car park in the picture, and the rust bubbles on the lip of the bonnet (hood) have gotten worse.

I always call it the French peasants car. Cheap, comfortable, good on fuel, can shove a lot of crap in it if you need, nippy to, but unstable, flimsy and not hugely reliable compared to cheap Japanese cars.

I only added the sig because was saying in another thread about how i heard one British comic call Americans "obese, burger eating invasion monkeys", and Americans calling French "cheese eating, surrender monkeys" so i thought I'd make a British one, since we are supposedly good at self deprecation

Crooked toothed, tea swilling crumpet eater!

I really really hate cars. Love my little Metro though...
